Drive around in Bangalore
Whenever I have to make any important decision, I go for a drive in the city. At nights. Around Ring Road, the Mysore highway, on that beautiful stretch on Cubbon Road or the new airport road. Bangalore is beautiful at nights and driving helps me clears my mind and think. I just love driving. Robin Uthappa

A cheaper option is Hotel Nandhini (from Rs 2100) on St Mark's Road.
Shop for gifts
If there are any exhibition-cum-sale of arts and handicrafts at Chitrakala Parishat (overlooking the Bangalore Golf Course), you could do some gift-shopping there. Otherwise, visit the arts emporiums in the city - MG Road, Cunningham Road - however be warned that they are very expensive.
Tips for Travellers
This applies to all cities: carry soap strips with you if possible, and wash your hands before every meal. Tourists, especially from western countries, tend to be susceptible to upset tummies and diarrhoea in India. Washing your hands can go a long way in making your trip a sick-free one.
